This bug is a duplicate of 9532, but that bug has been marked resolved when
in fact it is not. /var/named as contained in caching-nameserver is owned
by root.root -- This makes it impossible for the named daemon to write
files to the /var/named directory because named runs as user named as of RH
6.2. Presumably all files in /var/named should be owned by named.named.

This is a bug in the bind package, which should be providing the
/var/named directory.  A fixed version is available in Raw Hide
